bike with Dad and Josh to Provo pool to meet up with Alistor and Mauri
bike to Springville (Evan and Corinne's) with the boys. I felt like a mother duckling for some reason.
play football in the backyard of my mother's childhood and the now-backyard of my cousins.
eat delicious dinner.
play Candyland and Imaginiff.
eat pie: rhubarb and banana cream.
play kick the can.
pile into the van and return home.
it was all lovely fun. I am thankful for so many things. Family. Friends. Peace. Sunshine. Mountains. Books. Music. Prayers. Hope. Scriptures. Bikes. Games. Laughter. Earth's beauties. Home. Ukraine. Smiles. Hugs. Understanding. Babies. Sharing. Temples. Testimonies. Trees. Water. Hikes. Runs. Swims. Sleep. Students. Learning. Teaching. Writing. Memories. Faith. Past. Present. Future. Eternity. Encouragement. Comfort. And so on and so forth.

We also had the lovely luck of being stalked by a binocular-bearing fan who sat totally opposite us in the stadium. Mags received a text stating: "I know where you are." She replied: "What am I wearing?" The response which came astounded us and had us looking every which way to try to find this creeper (ok, he's really not a creeper, just one of Mags' friends). We didn't think he had binoculars and then we realized he must because he texted back: "You're wearing a BYU t-shirt with a long sleeve white shirt underneath. You're friend is wearing some weird black thing on her head. Immediately to your left is a fat guy in gray."
He was exactly right. He had us laughing for a good five minutes. We were much more self-conscious and ceased picking our noses for fear we'd be seen by BinoculoRex.
So why the "weird" black thing on my head? To protect my fair skin.
